Read full description of the books:
"Flavia irá confrontar-se com duas mortes misteriosas, separadas pelo tempo, mas relacionadas. Para agravar a situação ainda tem que lidar com a sua vida familiar agitada, complicada pela difícil convivência com as irmãs.
O fim da Segunda Guerra vai encontrar Dieter, o deslumbrante prisioneiro de guerra alemão, a trabalhar na quinta de Culverhouse que é propriedade do casal Ingleby e fica situada perto da bucólica Bishop's Lacey. Certa tarde, o filho dos Ingleby desaparece e Dieter irá descobri-lo enforcado num antigo patíbulo, na clareira do Bosque de Gibbet, onde a Meg Louca passa os seus dias.
Cinco anos mais tarde chega a Bishop's Lacey um casal de artistas - ele é um bonecreiro de génio, estrela do público infantil da BBC, ela a sua fiel ajudante. A indómita Flavia De Luce, 11 anos de enorme talento, é encarregada de os ajudar a instalarem-se na terra. Mas o ambiente adensa-se na aldeia quando um dos espectáculos de marionetas, apresentado pelo famoso bonecreiro, termina de forma trágica. E Flavia De Luce terá, uma vez mais, de dar provas das enormes capacidades dedutivas na descoberta do que liga o passado ao presente."

Read information about the authorLibrarian Note: There is more than one author in the Goodreads database with this name.
With an education in electronic engineering, Alan worked at numerous radio and television stations in Ontario, and at Ryerson Polytechnical Institute (now Ryerson University) in Toronto, before becoming Director of Television Engineering in the media centre at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, where he remained for 25 years before taking early retirement to write in 1994.
He became the first President of the Saskatoon Writers, and a founding member of the Saskatchewan Writers Guild. His children's stories were published in The Canadian Children's Annual, and his short story, Meet Miss Mullen, was the first recipient of the Saskatchewan Writers Guild Award for Children's Literature.
For a number of years, he regularly taught Script Writing and Television Production courses at the University of Saskatchewan (Extension Division) at both beginner and advanced levels.
His fiction has been published in literary journals and he has given many public readings in schools and galleries. His short stories have been broadcast by CBC Radio.
He was a founding member of The Casebook of Saskatoon, a society devoted to the study of Sherlock Holmes and Sherlockian writings. Here, he met the late Dr. William A.S. Sarjeant, with whom he collaborated on their classic book, Ms Holmes of Baker Street. This work put forth the startling theory that the Great Detective was a woman, and was greeted upon publication with what has been described as "a firestorm of controversy".
The release of Ms. Holmes resulted in national media coverage, with the authors embarking upon an extensive series of interviews, radio and television appearances, and a public debate at Toronto's Harbourfront. His lifestyle and humorous pieces have appeared in The Globe and Mail and The National Post.
His book The Shoebox Bible (McClelland and Stewart, 2006) has been compared with Tuesdays With Morrie and Mr. God, This is Anna.
In July of 2007 he won the Debut Dagger Award of the (British) Crimewriter's Association for his novel The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie, the first of a series featuring eleven year old Flavia de Luce, which has since won the 2009 Agatha Award for Best First Novel,the 2010 Dilys Award,the Spotted Owl Award, and the 2010 Arthur Ellis Award for Best First Novel.
The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie has also been nominated for the Macavity, the Barry, and the Arthur Awards.
Alan Bradley lives in Malta with his wife Shirley and two calculating cats.
